Removal

1. If glass cannot be raised and is in a partially down position,  it must be supported. If not supported,  glass will fall into door well during removal. If possible,  raise glass to full up position. Disconnect negative battery
cable.
2. Remove door trim panel and shield. Disconnect motor wiring connector,  and position wiring out of way. Using a 3/4" hole saw with a 1/4" pilot,  drill out 2 dimples in door to expose motor mounting screws.
3. Remove 3 bolts attaching window regulator and motor. Prior to window regulator and motor removal,  ensure regulator arm is in a fixed position to prevent counterbalance spring from unwinding. Disengage motor
from regulator.

Installation

Position motor to regulator and install bolts. Do not tighten. Connect wiring and check glass to ensure gear engagement. After gears engage,  tighten 3 attaching bolts to 50 80 INCH lbs. (5.6 9.6 N.M). To complete
installation,  reverse removal procedure.

When you take motor loose, make sure window doesn't try to drop.
